Restaurant Reviews:

Great experience at JD's! Not overcrowded like downstairs. Delish sushi, hake, prawns and kids meals (chicken strips and fish fingers). Quick and friendly service from our waiter, Thami. Big enough play area and fun birthday song. Lucky packets for the kids. Keen to come again!

Great service as always. The kiddies love the play area and the prawns are always spot on.

Such great staff. Friendly and accommodating. And such fantastic sushi. I would highly recommend for an adult outing or with kids. Central and convenient.

3rd Time eating here and it’s fast becoming our new hang out spot. Had queen prawns tonight and I was amazed. It was fantastic. The only place where I enjoy tempura sushi. The service is also always good

What a treat. We were warmly welcomed and taken to our seats. We arrived at 19h30 on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was slowly emptying out. Marius, the manager, who was so generous explained that because it's in the mall, dinner service is a bit earlier to other restaurants. So a heads up, if you go, make a reservation for a bit earlier then you usually would. The restaurant was nice and warm and well lit. For starters we were torn between the jalepeno poppers and the sushi. So we had both. The jalepeno poppers were cheesy. The only problem was there were only 3 poppers and two of us eating. So we had to share and they were simply too tasty to share. We then had the freshest sushi platter. I usually dont get too full after sushi, but because it was so good, we gobbled it down and filled up. We waited a bit before placing our mains order. For mains we had the platter. Once again fresh and tasty. The prawns were particularly tasty and juicy. Often when I have had platters like this at other restaurants, some parts would be room temperature and others would be nice and hot. Luckily the whole platter was nice and hot. In between mains and dessert I indulged in a jelly tot milky bar milkshake. Wow! It was sweet but so yummy. I could come for the shake alone. Definitely was my cheat part of the meal. Okay I lie, desserts were also a cheat, but so worth it. Overall it was a lovely evening out. Pleasent service from our waiters and great food at great value for money. Just note that they usually close at 21h00, so try go early. Luckily they allowed us to eat and I didnt feel rushed. I just felt guilty.
